2017 SMA Doctoral Consortium

The 29th SMA Doctoral Consortium is a two-day program that will be held on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 beginning at 7:30 AM and end on Thursday, November 9, 2017, 5:30 pm at the SMA Annual Conference. Doctoral Consortium Fellows (participants) experience unique learning and networking opportunities designed to help future marketing academicians succeed. Doctoral Consortium Fellows work together with top marketing scholars in professional development and career planning sessions that incorporate research, teaching, and service.

Doctoral students attending the consortium come from leading universities across the United States and abroad. The success of the program is evident by the number of Doctoral Consortium Fellows that return year after year to offer insight and advice to new Fellows. The Doctoral Consortium is in keeping with SMA tradition, offering the attention, hospitality, and warmth that typify our organization.

The registration cost of the Doctoral Consortium is $250 ($300 if paid after October 1, 2017), which includes consortium registration, all meals during the consortium, conference attendance (November 7 - 11, 2017), and access to SMA Placement Service.

In order to be considered as a SMA Doctoral Consortium Fellow, students first must be nominated by one of their university’s doctoral faculty members. Third and fourth year students will benefit most from participation. Generally, there is a limit of one student per school.  Nominations must be sent directly via email to the consortium chairs listed below.  Once a nominee is confirmed as eligible, the next step is for the student to complete the registration form (MSWord) and pay the registration fee (payable to the Society for Marketing Advances). The form provides directions for payment.  Follow the links below for additional information and communicate with other DC students on Facebook.
